O'Rourke's loss should put to rest the notion that a left-wing progressive can win in deep-red Texas without compromising on key issues.
Ted Cruz will keep his seat in the U.S. Senate, voters decided Tuesday.
He also references the "Cruz is the Zodiac Killer" joke by saying that Cruz's stance on repealing Obamacare would kill way more people than the Zodiac ever did. The president's campaign hosted an all-day tailgate and a rally for supporters, while Trump gave Cruz a new nickname: "Beautiful Ted".
Colbert noted that Triumph had been unsuccessful in confronting Senator Ted Cruz during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, but Triumph's luck was a bit better this time around.
OnePlus 6T might come in Thunder Purple (which probably means no red)
On Friday, OnePlus fans created history by unboxing 559 OnePlus 6T devices at the same time, at the same location. For example, Vodafone is offering the OnePlus 6T with 4GB of data for £36 per month plus a £129 upfront fee.

A CBP spokesman said today's activities are "operational readiness exercises" related to preparing for the caravan, which is still hundreds of miles south of the border.
'Does it concern you that half your base thinks they can vote through Instagram?', Triumph asks, drawing a laugh out of the Democrat. That mind is none other than Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (and the man behind him, SNL vet Robert Smigel). He insists he won't run for any office higher than Senate, but that's done little to quash speculation that he could challenge Trump for the presidency in two years. "See, because he's a ugly fish monster".
'I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you!', Triumph quipped. I'm not overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming!" and "Ted, quick question! "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?" "Just remember", Cruz cautioned Triumph. So with Conan on hiatus this week, Stephen Colbert "borrowed" Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to send down to the lone star state to gauge the vibes at Beto and Cruz rallies.
Cruz did show the humility to pay tribute to O'Rourke for his campaign - as the boos rang out among his supporters - and what he had done to mobilise and energise young voters.
